Illinois Union Work Injury Cases

Union workers injured on the job usually have some of the highest value cases in Illinois.

The reason is that Union workers typically have some of the highest wages in the State.

Wage rates are a big factor in determining final value of the settlement or award. The higher the hourly rate the higher the settlement.

Union workers have a dangerous job environment. This may result in serious injuries that require surgery.

Surgical repairs also contribute to a higher value settlement.

Workers’ Compensation Arbitrators have historically awarded larger amounts for a surgery.

Be careful that the Workers’ Compensation Insurance Company does not treat you like the average injured worker.
